The California Legislature Passed Senate Bill 1186

Despite efforts by Californians with disabilities, DREDF, and other advocacy organizations, the California legislature passed Senate Bill 1186, which will diminish the rights of people with disabilities. On September 14, a coalition of disability rights organizations sent a letter to Governor Brown seeking an opportunity to share our grave concerns with him before he made a decision on whether or not to sign the bill. Unfortunately, the governor signed SB 1186 on September 19. We will continue our efforts to mute the impact of this unjust law.
